Every fiber of my being told me not to go this morning. The voices said:
“I have laundry to do.”
“I have to get ready for brunch this afternoon.”
The list was actually pretty long, but I’m thinking you’ve got the gist of it.
As I was lacing up my sneakers I thought:
“You just ran over 3 miles yesterday.”
“I’m supposed to get a day of rest.”
“Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow…”
Suddenly I found myself at the track:
“How did I get here?”
“I’ll just go around once.”
From the track, I headed to the road where every sign was telling me to stop.
“Go back, you can do more tomorrow.”
“You know you can’t do this today.”
“Wait, was that a twinge?”
As I went up the road I saw, beautiful fall colors. Heard my favorite songs on my Ipod. Solved a problem or two.
Suddenly every time I saw a stop sign. I asked, “who me? No way! Not today.”
